Regent’s record breaking day saw 40% more cruises booked than their previous high, the inaugural launch day for Seven Seas Splendor in the spring of 2018.
While all destinations experienced high-levels of interest for Regent cruises, cruises in Africa, Asia, the Mediterranean and Northern Europe – the Baltics in particular – were notably popular. The cruise line announced their 2022-2023 Voyage Collection which offered 148 cruises around the globe.
The 2022-2023 Voyage Collection launch also saw an over 100% increase in bookings from when the cruise line’s 2021-2022 Voyage Collection went on sale in August 2019. The line had surpassed the total number of bookings for the previous year’s launch by 10:00am EST.
Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer for Regent Seven Seas Cruises, gave the following statement: “The staggering response to our 2022-2023 Voyage Collection demonstrates the incredible future demand for the unrivaled Regent experience. Luxury travelers simply cannot wait to get back on the oceans to see the world again, while enjoying impeccable, personalized service on luxurious and spacious ships. Our loyal guests wasted no time in securing their perfect itinerary and suite with last year’s Voyage Collection launch day total eclipsed after only 90 minutes of being on sale.”
The carefully curated collection of 148 cruises from April 2022 to the end of April 2023, boasts 17 maiden ports of call for the cruise line and 105 overnight visits.
Travelers will have access to over 350 UNESCO World Heritage Sites across thousands of FREE unlimited shore excursions on cruises to Africa and Arabia, Alaska, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Canada and New England, the Caribbean and Panama Canal, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and South America, as well as transoceanic crossings and five Grand Voyages.
The record bookings day follows hot on the heels of Regent’s recent record-breaking launch day for its 2023 World Cruise where reservations doubled that of the 2022 World Cruise launch.
